Happy Fall Term Everyone! To the upper years, I hope you enjoyed your summer of fun and are ready for MORE FUN! To the first years, welcome welcome welcome! There are lots of fun events coming up and I’m excited to share them with all of you.
First of all, the First Year Leadership Conference is coming up this weekend, and it’s going to be lit! For more information on other conferences coming up, sign up for the mailing list on our website! Didn’t sign up for the conference? Still want to get involved? Have any questions? Reach out to our First Year Commissioner Theresa DeCola at firstyear@engsoc.uwaterloo.ca for more information about all things first-year! You can sign up to be a director shadow, to be a volunteer, and to get an upper year mentor. There’s something for everyone!
On top of that, we are currently accepting submissions for the Patch Design Contest, so get designs in fast. All submissions will be voted on at the end of October, so get your creative juices flowing. The funnier, the better!
We also have lots of fun events happening on the regular! Board Games is on Mondays in POETS from 5:30-8:30 PM, so come out, meet new friends, and SMASH. Engiqueers is on Tuesdays from 6-9, come out  to meet people in the LGBTQ community. It’s a safe space for everyone, so join in the fun. Charity Grilled Cheese also happens every other week at lunch on Tuesdays so come out and support a good cause!
On the topic of good causes, Charity of the Year voting is open! Each year, the Engineering Society votes on a new charity to support for the year in order to strengthen multiple parts of our community. Be sure to vote before it closes!
But wait, there’s more! We are running a term long SCUNT this Fall, the items for which can be found at bit.ly/scunt-f17. If you get a certain number of points, you could win a patch, a t-shirt, or even a coveted purple hard hat. Creativity is key, so show your Engineering Pride and GET IT DONE!
That’s all for now, if you have any questions about ALL THINGS FUN, come by my office hours on Wednesdays from 1:30-4:30 in the EngSoc office! Hope to see you there!
